    With a Yeti this can be caused by not using a strong enough winter screen wash. The pipe freezes and expands, then thaws then freezes and expands again eventually pulling off at the joint.

    I don't have satnav, but you need a genuine Skoda SD card to work as it will have some identifying software on it. That said, there are some "knock off" copies on eBay that do work.

    Was the egr valve changed for a Skoda one? With so many being fitted to "fixed" cars, in quite a few cases pattern parts have been fitted and failed. If you bought the car from a dealer he is...

    I don't have a unit with Sat Nav, but have read of problems caused by the latest software update. I know of at least one owner who is holding off the update until stability issues have been rectified.

    I know of some Yeti owners that have used this firm http://www.unit18.co.uk/

    It costs around £50, it is not a remap as such they restore it to its original state.

    There are some firms who revert it to a mirror image of the software before the EA189 update. That costs considerably less. The fix also causes the injectors to fail.

    The stop start stops working if the battery voltage is low, so perhaps it is time to replace the battery. Be warned a glass mat battery is eye wateringly expensive.

    If you look in the boot where the spare wheel would be (if you had one) there should be a sticker giving the manufacture trim and options codes.

    You will find that there are more components with VW or Audi on them than Skoda. On my Yeti about the only things with Skoda written on them are the badges.

    Hi Sharks, I hope time does not drag too much for you, at least the wait is less than it was for the Yeti, I waited five and a half months for mine. Did you order many extras?

    If it is anything like my Yeti the only things with Skoda written on them are the badges. So with everything having either Audi or VW stamped on it you will not be getting any withdrawal symptoms.:)

    As long as it does not happen very often it is not a problem. If it happens regularly the DPF may not be getting fully regenerated. If that is the case a good blast down the motorway would do it good.
